Where: Ningaloo Reef Western Australia

Experience Overview:

Have you ever wanted to adventure on the pristine waters of the Ningaloo Reef? Come join Andre and Nush on 38’ luxury Sailing catamaran ‘ Cruise Ningaloo’ and embark on a hands on adventure of a lifetime. This 4 day 3 night intimate Sailing experience will show you what the incredible UNESCO World Heritage Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park have to offer.

Both Andre and Nush have strong & professional backgrounds in freediving, videography and photography as well as a deep passion for the ocean, especially the Ningaloo reef. Their aim will be to take you exploring and incorporate workshops to further your skills while learning about the underwater environment of the Ningaloo and ocean conservation.

This couple want to show you their home and a typical day on the Ningaloo so you can expect epic wildlife moments, secluded beaches, remote islands, golden sunsets and non stop activities (but if you want to relax and enjoy some quiet moments on the bow of the catamaran don’t worry they will let you do that too!).

Nush and Dre are very environmentally conscious and love living plastic free so while on board they will also teach you some tricks to reduce your impact on the planet through some fun workshops and cooking classes.

This tour will be catered to the group on board and there is a range of activities which include (weather permitting):
  • Snorkelling
  • Freediving
  • Photography
  • Sailing
  • Paddle Boarding
  • Fishing
  • Watermanship workshops

  • Spring suit/rash vest or wetsuit (would recommend bringing thicker wetsuit 3mm and a spring suit)

Recommended for:

We would recommend this trip for anyone who wants to further their skills underwater and learn more about the ocean and the Ningaloo. There will be some incredible opportunities to create content, explore, relax, adventure and immerse in the beauty of the North West. We want to make this a trip to remember for anyone that comes along and will cater to the group but an interest in the included activities is a must as we will be spending a lot of time on and in the water.

About your creative guides

Dre:

Andre has a long history when it comes to the ocean and underwater photography. A lot of people call him “Aqua Man” because he really is a sea creature. Starting as a commercial diver and spearfisherman, Dre has dived and freedived around the world and has gained a world of experience from spending more time in and on the water than on land. He has completed a number of freediving and waterman ship courses and is an instructor for One ocean International and an ambassador for Adreno Freediving.

This salty sea dog has lived on the Western Australian coast for the last 12 years and documented some incredible natural history moments in this time. Some include bait balls, humpback whale migration, great white sharks and Ocra predations. This has led him to working for companies such as BBC, Discovery Channel and National geographic.

Nush:
Nush or Nushy in the Bushy is a Western Australian girl who has always had a huge passion for the ocean. She has lived in Exmouth for the last 4 years but has been visiting the area since she was just 3 months old. Nush previously worked as a tour guide in the Cape Range National Park taking people on snorkelling, kayaking and hiking tours. She’s your go to girl when looking for knowledge of the area.

Nush currently works as an underwater Photographer for Ningaloo Discovery and takes images of whale sharks and humpback whales on the daily. For the last year she has spent her time working as a presenter and filmer for National Geographic and is also an ambassador for Adreno Freediving.
